Missouri Partnership

Business recruitment and marketing for the state

In 2007, the Hawthorn Foundation created Missouri Partnership to serve as the state’s leading business recruitment and marketing organization. The Missouri Partnership is the most important "front wheel" in business recruitment for the Hawthorn Foundation.  An independent board of directors governs the Partnership, whose leadership comes from Hawthorn members.

Today the Partnership is widely acknowledged as one of the nation’s premier statewide private sector business recruitment organizations. The Partnership’s services, all of which are provided free of charge to businesses interested in opening new operations in Missouri, include locating sites and buildings, compiling workforce data, facilitating government and regulatory meetings, determining incentive eligibility, coordinating labor training and identifying utility availability and costs.
